About This Activity

What had started as a few old friends trying to recreate some childhood memories, evolved into an event that is sure to create a bond for their families and friends for generations to come. 
In early 2013, Todd Eisenberg, Mitch Gross, Phil Hirshman, Jeff Rubin and Gil Wolchock began casual conversations about traveling from all corners of the country to reconvene in our old neighborhood of Albidale to see if our middle-aged bodies could endure some street hockey. That little idea mushroomed into a hugely successful summer charity event and local reunion that has raised nearly $20,000 combined in it's first 2 years. 
After supporting the American Cancer Society in year 1 and the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation last year, we are proud to focus our efforts on raising money for the Fox Chase Cancer Center and their research programs in memory of Howard T. Rosen, a close Oldtimer friend and 2-time Event attendee. Howard was provided care by the great cancer team at Fox Chase whose surgical procedures and other treatments helped provide "H" with peace of mind during a difficult ordeal. We look forward to making a large donation in H's honor to support research that will help provide comfort to future cancer patients.
